Grazing and Nutrient Management

Grazing and Nutrient Management

Date / Time: February 27, 2018 2:00 am

Gain a better understanding of nutrient management issues associated with grazing operations.

So, where will they drop it now? Pasture and range operations play an important role in livestock management, especially for ruminant animals like beef. Effectively dealing with nutrient management on grazing operations must be addressed and they create many challenges. There are various grazing systems, and each one tackles nutrient management in a different way. Animal type along with forage type and quality also impact this nutrient management issue. What is the nutrient uptake by the animals? How many nutrients are returned to the pastures/rangelands through manure? What is the distribution of the nutrients? Are supplemental nutrients required to maintain pasture plant health? In this webinar, the speakers will attempt to answer these and other questions as we explore the world of Grazing and Nutrient Management.
